  • Hipsters inspire hair-raising trend

    From tightening their torsos to nipping their noses, men are flocking to plastic surgeons in record numbers. While traditional procedures remain popular among this group, one unconventional trend has gained an impressive amount of traction within this group: beard transplants. 

  • What is the Daddy Do-Over?

    Walk into any surgeon's office requesting a Mommy Makeover and they'll know exactly what sort of procedure you would like. But if you were to request a Daddy Do-Over, would your surgeon know what to expect, or would they be caught off guard by your question? 

    A rising trend known as the Daddy Do-Over has been featured in a number of news articles recently. Unlike Mommy Makeovers, the Daddy Do-Over trend does not feature a staple procedure or set of operations. The term has been used more as an all-inclusive term for the set of surgeries sought by middle-aged men. 

  • Many plastic surgeons link

    A plastic surgeon reports to CNN that a young man in his 20s complained, "I have man boobs," and that this problem had been getting worse over the last couple of years. The doctor noticed a familiar sweet smell, reminding him of rock concerts, wafting from the patient's body. He advised his patient, "The first thing you need to do is stop smoking pot. Marijuana could be causing your man boobs."

He recently returned to "The Doctors," looking slim and toned as a result of his recent tummy tuck and neck liposuction. 

  • Botox's next frontier: Prostate cancer

  • Men: Shopping for Botox injections is not like buying a car

    The grim truth is that it takes people 55 and over much longer (50.4 weeks) to find work after job loss compared with 34.2 weeks for those under 55, according to the American Association for Retired People (AARP). Despite laws prohibiting age discrimination, looking old (or older) can be a roadblock to rebooting a career. Women have solved this problem for years with visits to a plastic surgeon. 

  • Listen up men: Prevent buttock loss!

    Men have always suffered the indignities of hair loss, but the Australian Financial Review suggests if you're over 40, you may also be a victim of buttock loss. 

    Not every man suffers from loss of buttock volume. It is more likely in men who spend their days sitting or, worse, sitting tilted forward over a keyboard. To add insult, your buttock fullness may migrate forward to your belly if it doesn't just 'flat out' disappear. 

  • Are men feeling pressured to use Botox?

    Plastic surgeons in the U.S. are seeing an increase in men seeking Botox injections to secure a younger-looking face, according to Market Watch.

  • Why are more men getting plastic surgery?

    Every plastic surgery patient has his or her own personal reasons for going under the knife, but there are general trends that cosmetic surgeons see amongst their clients.

  • Increasing number of men zapping fat without surgery
